About Christian

I’m 39, a teacher, a husband, and a dad to two wonderful little girls. In my meager spare time, I chase trout. In the winter, it’s Fraser Valley cutties close to home. The rest of the year, I make the short hop to the Merritt and Kamloops areas to hunt Pennasks, FVs, and Blackwaters. My preferred technique is whatever is working at the moment, but I generally alternate between ripping leeches on a fast sink line and staring at indicators.

    Great performance on the inaugural mission! Three cutties on the first three casts. Hopefully it will perform just as well on rainbows when the ice melts.
